in the world can people say they want four more years of president obama? we can't afford four more years of president obama! ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: romney has based his campaign on the economy, but if ohio, the economic picture has been improving. after hitting a high of 10.6% three years ago, unemployment has been at 7.2% for three straight months. the national average is 8.1%. outside dayton, romney also talked about how his plan to pursue new trade agreements will help people in the state. >> the people in ohio can sell products anywhere in the world, and we can compete with anywhere in the world. i'm not afraid of trading with other nations. i understand that when we trade and when other nations trade on a fair basis we will complete, we will win, we'll raise wages here, we'll create jobs. >> reporter: with the election possibly in the balance in ohio, both sides are campaigning hard. both candidates have been here 13 times this year and they will both be here tomorrow. >> here in ohio we're not better off under president obama. >> reporter: they're also flooding the ai
in america. i want to create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. >> obama care is point number one. it is the example number one where he wants to put bureaucrats between you and your doctor, he believes that the government should tell you what kind of insurance you have to have. he believes that government should have a board of people that tell you what kind of care you can receive. my view is we fight for freedom in this country, i do not want an intrusive massive larger debt spending government that crushes the american dream. >> they like to call it obama care, well, let me tell you, i do care. i care about all the young people who are able to stay on their parents' plans now. i care about the seniors who are seeing lower prescription drug costs. i care about folks with pre-existing conditions who can't be denied care now. governor romney has promised that he would overturn obama care on its first day in office. which means -- which means he would kick nearly 7 million young people off their parents' plans. he would make seniors prescription drugs more expensive, yo
electoral votes there. now, a one-point, one-point lead for obama, down from four points in september. we should mention here that poll shows the president still with the seven-point lead in ohio. we can't forget about ohio. but speaking nationwide here, the president's lead, in our cnn poll of polls, you can see it here, stands at 3 percentage points, unchanged. as we noticed today, kind of interesting, the president has gained one point and romney dropped one point. this is the gallup national tracking poll. obama with a six-point lead there, six-point lead in that one. the point to remember yet again here, game on in virginia. game on in florida with tonight's debate less than seven hours away. let's go straight to denver and to jim acosta. and, jim, does team romney, do they see the polls we ran through, is this a sign the race is tightening, is the wind in romney's sails, is it there going into tonight? >> they do, actually. i just got off the phone with a couple of romney campaign sources, brooke. i can tell you that the romney campaign does see this race tightening right now and th
that automatically? this time around it's more dangerous, isn't it? for president obama to blame a guy four years ago. >> yeah, because people are going to say, what did you do lately? you've had four years to fix the economy and look at the economic malaise we're still in. look at the jobs reports. last month, adding 96,000 jobs. not even enough to keep pace with population growth. chris: we put the first debate to the matthews meter. 12 of our regulars, including john, kelly and howard is mitt romney more likely to break through wednesday night on style points or on substantive arguments? nine say substance. three say style. you voted with the majority. howard, -- >> well, he's got to do it. again, deftly with humor. but he's got to brace the president. he's got to say, look, you're responsible. you're the economic commander in chief. there has not been nearly enough progress and not what you promised. here are five promises you made. you haven't met any of them. why do you deserve another four years, sir, if you haven't done that? that's the case he's got to make in the first debate. chris: well d
that happened four years ago. joe biden and barack obama have been talking about this for four years, and quite frankly the last four years on the campaign trail, we've been digging out from all these bad decisions. and look, they're relevant today, because what mitt romney wants to do is take all those bad decisions, huge tax cuts for the wealthy instead of the middle class, letting wall street write its own rules, he wants to go back to all of that. because for some reason, he remembers those as good economic times. but the middle class doesn't remember those as good economic times. we have dug out, we've added jobs in the past 30 minutes for the private sector. and that's what's important and that's what this choice will be about. >> but i assume you agree, if you had your way, a do-over, he could have phrased it a little bit better than he did. i understand what you're saying and i certainly appreciate what he probably wanted to say, but the way it came out was not necessarily politically smart. >> well, look, wolf, i think the debate tomorrow is going to be the choice that joe biden exactl
more years of barack obama, we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the battle for the white house zeros in on ohio. >> both president obama and mitt romney will be in the same state at the same time. >> no republican has won the white house without winning the buckeye state. >> o.h. >> o.h. works every time. >> iranian president mahmoud ahmadinejad addresses the united nations today as he and his regime face ever increasing international pressure. >> israel believes you want to destroy them. you said you want to drive them from the face of the earth. >> football fans are fuming over that botched call by replacement refs. the upheld that call. >> yeah. some are calling it the worse call in the nfl history since d to play at the super bowl. >> worst touchdown ever. hail the size of tennis balls. >> the paddle boat race that teams are still talking about. >> how about a car without a driver. governor jerry brown instituted safety regulations for self-driving car. >> it came courtesy. >> is he frugal or cheap? >> cheap. >> wow. >> all that matters. >> seattle seah
of barack obama and says look, we can't take four more years of this and here's where we're going. if he comes in there tough and competent and destroys that caricature, i think he can still wake up this country, and i think there's still a chance he can turn it around. he's got to win it, though, john. >> obama's campaign staff is telling everybody it sees how good romney is at debating. >> well, each of the campaigns sent out a memo basically saying how good the other guy is and stressing all of their guy's flaws. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so
with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did bette
continuity wising here's the problem we are going to have four years or if we want more than a billion dollars to answer it. that culture and the institution building that is taking place around the obama campaign helps give the democrats a major advantage and in the 08 campaign, as i write about in the book come this is an exceptional experience, it is partly because of the long prairie. he is in the stuff that so many of the people on the campaign came into contact with pretty sophisticated tools and in politics, and a lot of those states who are a field director and using the slowly advanced data in 2008 went out and went to state parties or labor unions or institutions on the left and there's a sort of pollination that is taking place that i think a little more active on the democratic side right now than on the republican side. .. and the ore opponents by using data. but there are scrambling to sort of build anything approaching the scaling of the obama campaign and anything approaching l am ambition of the obama campaign. types you can solve in six months are going to b
as so determined by the supreme court. >> and then this week romney mangles his message by saying obama didn't raise taxes in his first term but might in his second term. >> he's got one new idea. i admit he has one thing he did not do in his first four years he said he's going to do in the next four years which is raise taxes. >> which is it, mark? did he or didn't he or is he about to and hasn't yet? >> i will probably have a more charitable interpretation. >> your interpretation is the one we want. >> my sense is he was talking about raising marginal tax rates rather than raising any taxes. >> that's charitable, you're right. >> i will say a version of what i said before. he's not at the point where he can afford either to create distractions through loose rhetoric or to have a muddled message that doesn't give people a sense of where his heart is, as you said at the beginning. i'm just amazed that at this stage he's been a candidate for five years now that he's still just being that sloppy in a way that distracts from trying to drive a male message that could help him make up the ga
four years will be better for you than the first four years of an obama presidency? i think that the economy -- you can look at some macrostatistics and say things are better in some ways, but i think there are still people who have a lot of doubt about what's going to happen next. talk to anybody who is doing focus groups now and ask people in groups, what does the president plan to do in another four years? people don't know. and so mitt romney still has an opportunity, i think, to not only say -- >> you can say the same about mitt romney. >> you could, you could, but the president has got a record of four years that a lot of americans aren't happy with. he's not coming close to driving that message. he's still doing one event a day. still more likely to do a bad television interview that says nothing or creates a negative story or has some old video pop out. this is not left wing pundits or reporters who don't like mitt romney. this is what every republican i talk to is saying, scratching their head saying how can he continue to waste another day? i'm looking at my calend
see another four years in office. michelle obama has won the "family circle" magazine presidential cookie bake-off. the magazine does this every four years for white and dork chocolate chip cookies. peter, you remember we talked about these. she won with 52% of reader's votes beating out ann romney's m&m cookies with 48%. >> john: were they -- >> recipes in the magazine. which one would you rather eat? >> john: she had a white chocolate -- >> white and dark chocolate. >> john: ann romney had m&m. it works itself out all around. that's exciting. do you ever feel like it is too wonky talking about these policy issues? >> no. >> john: good. >> by the way, i was all for ann romney's recipe. >> yeah, you were. >> john: that's because you hate barack obama because you're a racist. you hated michelle's cookies. what's wrong with you? >> it seems fitting that -- >> john: i don't want michelle obama's socialist cookies no. >> that's a painfully accurate accurate -- >> john: michelle obama with her sleeves
will that affect the voter's opinions? look at what happened four years ago. watch this. barack obama spoke more than two minutes longer than john mccain during the second debate in 2008. and during the third debate, there was an even bigger gaffe. obama talked a full five minutes longer than mcain. one major reason for the extra time obama received was the rebuttal time for mccain's numerous attacks. we're going to see what tonight's exchange brings since the moderator promised more interaction between these two candidates. candy's back at the debate hall in denver watching all of this unfold. it's getting crowded. i understand behind you. >> it is. think wedding right now. you're beginning to see folks come into this hall and on one side, will be the obama campaign supporters and on the other side will be the romney campaign supporters or at least in those front rows. we see people like nancy pelosi is here et cetera. you'll see the wives sort of right in the podiums are tilted. so, president obama will actually, he'll be this way. president obama will be looking at his wife who's sitting on t
. president obama will be making his case for four more years and mitt romney trying to convince the country he is the better man for the job. now, right now it looks like voters need convincing on both sides because in a brand new cnn poll of polls it shows a very close race. the president maintaining a razor-thin three-point lead with a month to go at this point. our cnn political director mark preston is live from denver right in the middle of it all. mark, you have new details on what to expect tonight. >> well, john, yes. there's no arguing, this is the most important moment of this presidential debate. in just a few hours as you said, mitt romney, barack obama squaring off here in denver. it will be a 90-minute debate. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums
that four more years of the obama administration is four more years the country can't afford. president obama saying that mitt romney and the republicans are offering the same kind of politics that get us into this mess in the first place. gregg: santita jackson joins us and brad blakeman joins us, former deputy assistant to george w. bush. santita let me start with you. americans are very unhappy with the economy, the president says he's unhappy too. is his challenge to explain how the next four years would be any different? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealt
the last five weeks. if you elect obama for the next four years, there will be no better than the past four years. i happen to believe that is true, but not very inspiring. it is hard to blame the guy. he wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast approach to democratic and independent constituencies. i do not think we will get the kind of framing you would like. i am a little less pessimistic. i do think reality matters. and we will hit a cliff and all kinds of ways. the fed cannot keep printing money and expecting the world to take it or buy treasury notes to fund trillion dollar deficits forever. the economy is slow and going into another dip. i actually think the next president will have a moment between november 7, and i do not know, this summer or fall of 2013 to do a lot. i would bet there is a huge legislative agenda in 2013. i did not really by the gridlock argument. if obama gets reelected, evil have a mandate basically -- he will have a mandate basically the lesser version of bowel- simpson. if romney wins, he will have a mandate for some version of the right and budget, pr
the next four years. it's very striking in the obama team announcement his campaign the last five weeks which is what, the last four years something like that. >> if you elect obama the next four years than the last four years. that's true and for reelecting obama but it's not an inspiring forward-looking slogan about what mitt romney will do. obama has cast his lot and it's hard to blame the guy that wants to get pretty elected -- reelected with a approach to the democratic and independent constituencies to try to scare them about romney is just bush and all that. i don't think we are going to get the training he would like. i love little less pessimistic that means they can't govern effectively. i do think reality matters as we have been saying. we are going to hit a cliff in all kind of ways. but it is a real cliff in 2013 in the sense that you cannot sustain these obviously for too long they can't keep printing money and expect the world to take it or why treasury forever. the economy is slow and may be going into another dip. the foreign policy challenges. i think the next presiden
for four years is going to be a lot better than four more years of president obama. and i think this is the first time, christine, where people have had a chance to see side by side the two candidates. maybe 50 million, 60 million people watching. and i think he's going to hone in on the top issues that americans care about. and that is how to get our great country out of debt and back to work, with 8% unemployment for 43 months and gas prices doubling. and adding $6 trillion to the national debt. these are clearly things americans know we're on the wrong track on. i think what you're going to see mitt romney talk a lot about his plans to reverse that trend. policies of obama that have not worked. and why romney's plans will work. i think that's the heart and soul of what this election is about. >> you know, he has been talking about this on the stump speech. and i mean, tell me why for mitt romney the economy is not resonating with him more. when you look at the polls and our polling in particular, the president and mitt romney are basically neck and neck on the issue of the ec
obama make a lot of excuses as to why, when he was on that stage four years ago, not much of what he ever said was going to happen occurred. >> you know, on the subject of winning and losing, chris christie, big supporter of mitt romney, has come out and said he expects a big win for governor romney in this debate. we talked to brad woodhouse yesterday from the democratic side. this is what he said about christie's comments. >> i think he set the bar high for mitt romney, and the bar should be high for mitt romney. i mean, he's gone through this campaign. we're five weeks out, soledad, and he's not said how he'd pay for his tax plan. we're five weeks out, he hasn't said how he'll shore up medicare or social security. to protect benefits instead of cutting them. the bar is really high for him. i think chris christie set it even a little higher. >> so, sean, how high is the bar for governor romney? >> i see the folks from the obama campaign have talked down the expectations from the president so many days in a row, that today i expect them to come out and say that the president's got a
not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate. the news hour's jim lehrer moderates from the university of denver. watch and engage with crmbing span including our live debate preview at 7:00 p.m. eastern, the debate at 9:00 and post-debate your reactions. follow on c-span, c-span radio and online at c-span.org. >> september 11, 2001, was a day that change midlife forever. it changed america's life. i'm going to go through a power point presentation which is going to outline the account of the historical account of the attack as things happened, as things transpyred that day. it gets -- transpired that day. et gets intense. i'm going to do my best not to ramble on and go too fast. i would ask you to sit back, leer your mind, put yourself in that room an you'll get a real sense of what it was like to be at the too much the food chain, the national command authority, as a nation of 300 million americans was attack by 19 al qaeda t
to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy straightened out, but just take one election in two years, if it's not better, get rid of every one of them and they will finally get the message. host: let's look at some national news stories. this story from the new york times -- and this other story in the times -- looking at other international news stories on long lines of what our last caller was talking about, whether international news is getting attention. and this in the washington post -- the debate tomorrow night will focus on domestic issues. what would you be listening for? if you're not going to watch, why? monty writes -- in new orleans on the republican line, eustice. caller: good morning. i don't know how anything can change. romney would have to come up w
that they lost. >> i would gladly give my life to bring all four of them back. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. 41 days before the election, president obama is opening leads in states that mitt romney can least afford to lose. have a look at our new poll today. the president now has a 10-point lead in the swing state of ohio, 53% to 43. in florida, another key swing state, mr. obama's lead is nine points, 53% to 44. and the president leads by 12 point in pennsylvania, 54 to 42. this quinnipiac university/cbs news/"new york times" polls has a margin of roar of three points so the leads are significant. our cbs news election analysis team is moving ohio from a toss- up to leaning toward mr. obama. with that, we estimate 255 electoral votes are solidly in the obama camp or leaning that way. for governor romney the number is 206 with 270 needed to win. the president would have to pick up just 15 in the remaining toss-up state that you see on this map in gray. if the president wins ohio, governor romney would have to nearly s
of the past four years in the obama administration is how much policy has been driven from the white house. some presidents at least give lip service to cabinet government and empowering their secretaries. obama seems to have gone pretty far the other way. so i'm curious, one, in a second obama term was a continuation of the pattern, and with romney how do you think he would run things in terms of the relationship between the department and the white house? governor. >> i think we've strayed some distance from constitutional government in the sense the white house staff has been built up with layers of folks who kind of cushion the president from the departments and agencies. so i compare and contrast just by being a low-level staffer under reagan on the advanced staff, and seen that the universe of high profile cabinet members who interacted at least from what i can see, more directly with the president. and now we have layers that kind of cushion the president, a deputy chief of staff for policy or whatever the case might be. and i think we're drifting farther and farther away from that
challenge is not so much to make a case against president obama over the last four years. there's no question voters are ambivalent about the performance. he's got to make a case that he can make the next four years better. we have a poll out, national journal poll. are you better off? are you worse off? or about the same as four years ago. among the about the same folks, people who don't say they see any improvement over obama the president is still leading by over 20 points. that is what romney has to change. >> i want to share something "the new york times" says. the romney team has been included the debates are about moments and have equipped him with a dear riis of zingers he has memorized and been practicing on aides since august. we've got some here that we want to share. >> there you go again. i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> senator, i served with jack kennedy. i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no j
memo. four years ago barack obama faced john mccain on the debate stage, according to gallup voters judged him the winner by double digit margins and on one won it by an astounding 33 point margin. >> he's done this a lot, good at it and will be the winner. do you think it's as simple if you win the debate, you can win the election here? >> i think it's a lot more than that. people are going to -- people are looking for somebody to be president and a good president, looking for somebody that understands the concerns of the middle class, looking for somebody who has a plan to build an economy for the middle class. in the end, that's what this will come down to. the debates are an important moment but a lot more than who wins one debate or another debate. >> what do you think obama's biggest challenge will be? what are his advisors telling him? getting him to speak off-the-cuff? is that his biggest challenge? >> look, i think you never know what questions are going to be asked, certainly the president has not asked for, you know, my advice or what i expect he will. he has a very good
. obama trade among seniors by 13 points. in our new poll today, he is ahead by four, 51% to 47%. that is a swing of 17 points in one month. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. and, john, what do you see in that number in. >> reporter: well the the statisticians will remind us polls are just a snapshot and not predictive of what will happen but it does give us an indication of the underlying currents in the race. barack obama lost the senior vote to john mccain in florida by eight points in 2008. so for the president to be doing well in the traditional republican voting block is a danger sign for romney. strategists for both parties in florida agree obama is ahead in the state and the battle over met care is helping make inroads with seniors. as nancy reported, the president is doing better with blue collar white voters in ohio and doing better on the economy of the economy. it's whaepg is mitt romney is having to play defense with his own voting group. the time he has to spend shoring them up is time he's not spending getting swing voters. >> pelley: john, polls
, i get what obama's doing, he comes here and meets with four leaders and there's 25 that wonder why he didn't meet with them. he doesn't need that. >> what about netanyahu? >> well, netanyahu's been a problem. when you send the vice president to israel and the housing minister announces they're going to move into the settlements and have more illegal settlements. >> yeah. >> this is a personal problem. i don't think it's a problem between israel and america, i think it's a problem between netanyahu and obama. >> yeah. all right. >> i guess we've got to go. >> you all right? we get to see each other almost every week now. >> it's amazing. you did a great job on kudlow. >> i loved hearing you. and what we have is what this country needs. i don't know why we can't get it, do you? >> yeah, we can work this stuff out if we can sit down and talk instead of sloganeeing all the time. >> well, you forget the 9 million. >> i've got to watch you like a hawk. but anyway, thanks, governor, we appreciate it. >> see you guys later, thanks. >>> coming up, the case for precious metals. where eric sp
of president obama just like more john mccain four years ago and i talked to senator portman in an exclusive interview about how he prepares to prepare romney. >> you have to figure out how they're likely to express themselves. you know, what the body language is like. try to imitate the person but you try to give a fair presentation to whoever you're working with as to what they're likely to do. >> i tried to role play with him. i prepared to be mitt romney and to see how he was barack obama. >> did he play along? >> no. didn't go there. >> would have like to have been the vice presidential nominee and gets to play the president in these preparations. >> now key to the campaign. >> what's the president need to do this in debate? >> do no harm. no gaffes, obviously. second, he has to seem obviously presidential, down to earth, substantive all at once. that's a high hurdle. and third, crucially, make sure he doesn't come across as thin skinned or ar ro gabt when he faces the inevitable attacks from romney. that's challenging for a sitting president. they're not often confronted with somebody
by the fact that four years ago, similar question to then senator barack obama, who does he feel he can work with, he mentioned dick lugar. perhaps that's something that popped into her head. not realizing he lost his primary and will not be in the senate. she did not come up with another name and that reaction was an uncomfortable moment for her. the slish for her is could she work across party lines because brown has paint her as being in lockstep with democrats. those are sensitive areas for both candidates that really came out in those moments that were unaccountanted. -- unexpected. >> another trend or tactic he seemed to be using where he kept trying to put her in this ivory tower. watch this. >> she's, obviously, misstating the facts. these were rejection by both democrats and republicans, professor. there wasn't a -- if you're going to comment on my record i would have you refer to it -- >> excuse me. we're not -- >> excuse me. i'm not a student in your classroom. please let me respond, okay. thank you. >> okay. what was that all about? >> again, another one of those audience moments
